Yay, finally!!! I was asking Brandon to make piplup since... Eons! Isn't it super-nice? This time the model that Brandon gave me was already almost perfect: I only changed the beak and the head shape a lil bit. Great job Bran!
As usual, you'll find Piplup on our Paperpokés website [link] as soon as it gets a free spot!
3D Editing and template by Brandon, aka ~z8-0. Build by me.
There's nothing too difficult about building it. It just has a few small parts, like the claws, that just you just need to be careful on. It might be a good idea to place a small weight inside between its legs or on its belly because the "feathers" on its back make it a little unbalanced.
Thanks to Brandon for editing/designing this and letting me build it.
While I am on Uni holidays, I think I should probably make as many Paperpokés models as I can squeeze in, so here is the latest one.
To be honest with you guys, I really only played Pokémon Red/Blue (and then half of Silver/Gold), so I really am only familiar with the first generation and some of the second gen. This fifth gen just freaks me out - there is an ICE CREAM CONE pokémon!!!
Anyway, with my rant out of the way, I've been after Abra for ages - I think it's just so adorable, snoozing away. I am very grateful to POdragon [link] for whipping this up for me - I'm very spoiled Oh, and by the way, this is the shiny Abra texture that I built, the normal was so drab in comparison.
The only issue I can see others having when building this model are the fingers - they are a little fiddly - but that really is a minor detail, otherwise, it's a medium difficulty level build. I have no idea when this will be scheduled, but it'll probably be into the new year.
2011! That's the future! Where's my flying car already?
